Every school board establishes an advisory committee on services for handicapped students and students with social maladjustments or learning disabilities. It is known as the Special Education Advisory Committee.
SEAC has four functions:
- to advise the school board on a policy for the organization of educational services to handicapped students and students with social maladjustments or learning disabilities;
- to advise the resource allocation committee and the school board on the allocation of financial resources to the services intended for those students;
- to advise the school board on its commitment-to-success plan;
- to advise the school board on the implementation of an individualized education plan for a handicapped student or a student with social maladjustments or learning disabilities.
SEAC is constituted primarily of parents of students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Any parent or guardian of a student with an IEP, who is interested in becoming a member of SEAC, must submit their name at the governing board of their child’s school (if a meeting is held before the end of September) or via the online form linked below prior to September 30. Members will then be designated at the first Parents’ Committee of the school year.
If you were unable to attend the Annual General Assembly of your child’s school and would still like to be considered, please complete the short form below.
